And if it was made by the US goverment, it's public domain by default by the way. I wasn't going to tell you but I am rising above the fray in this great time of "change".

No offense taken, I appreciate the clarification...I'm usually on top of all things SNL, but I've been too darn busy over the last year to watch the show...it sucks not being on top of all the latest gags and missing out on all the inside jokes!

I'm going to assume public domain status, most Castle Films materials are PD...there are a few iconic shots in this film...John Jr's salute to his father...that are just heart-wrenching...even for a Canadian like myself!

I agree that Kennedy, though very inspiring and a great orator, is just as guilty as any other president of the various crimes of necessity that the office entails...just as Mr. Obama will certainly tow the line on many issues that affect American interests, hopefully he won't sell out completely, best of luck to him and to all of us....

True, yeah that is one of truly historic images of the 20th century. That family sure seems to have pissed off the "luck o' the irish" gods...

I only hope that in the age of political correctness, future valid critiques will not be cast in the unsavory light of racism, ya know, like the stuff, in the like, um, text area.

Sometimes my assisnine attempts at being the class clown in a class of millions doesn't always work out...

I'd say blackberry but that's racist... really he did drop it just now coming down the treacherous tarmac stairs, that along with gravity, plagued the 38th president and inspired the only popular imitation of someone that looked, acted and sounded nothing like the subject...
